Happy New Year!

Everyday Adventures

Friends and I rang in the new year at a party hosted by Lady Isabella and a good time was had by all that attended. Unfortunately I had a smidge too good of a time and had to pay the price this morning. Oh my but its been a while since I was so ill. Mon amour looked after me well, today, and I’m feeling more on the human side of things again. I will, I think, be very careful at his birthday party in a few weeks.

There will be no resolutions or declaration of intentions this year, all I want is to be happy and, frankly, things are looking well on that front, so no need to make a production of it. There is the aforementioned birthday in a couple weeks, Art/Sci the week after that, a possible shopping trip the following weekend, and Lion’s Tourney coming up close in February. I’m going to be a busy girl over the next few months, but the lack of school-work will, I hope, make things much more attainable.

One tradition I didn’t forgo was the New Year’s day food requirement. Cabbage (for wealth) and Black Eyed Peas (for health) were dutifully (and even a smidge enthusiastically) consumed. Y’all still have time to get your annual requirement so eat up!

Hey, Izzy! We didn’t sing Auld Lang Syne last night after the ball dropped. How forgetful of us!

Here it is, including some lyrics I’ve never heard before, for posterities sake:

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear
For auld lang syne,
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne!

We twa hae run about the braes,
And pu’d the gowans fine,
But we’ve wander’d mony a weary foot
Sin’ auld lang syne.

We twa hae paidl’t in the burn
Frae morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roared
Sin’ auld lang syne.

And there’s a hand, my trusty fiere,
And gie’s a hand o’ thine,
And we’ll tak a right guid willie-waught
For auld lang syne!

And surely ye’ll be your pint-stoup,
And surely I’ll be mine!
And we’ll tak a cup o’ kindness yet
For auld lang syne!

One thought on “Happy New Year!

  1. I downloaded that song we were talking about last night. Perfect. Absolutely perfect. Especially in context.
